Under sunny skies, the 2015 Relay for Life delivered yet another spirited opening ceremony — the 17th Cottonwood County event, 12th at Tegels Park in Windom.

The final tally is not yet complete, but it is believed this year’s event raised an estimated $58,000, according to Mary Schaufenbuel, one of the organizers for this year’s event.

There were plenty of people on hand and a new array of activities.

Hartman said this year’s event included 98 survivors and 14 first-time attendees. The oldest survivor was Loy Storey, 95. Loy is a 53- year survivor. The youngest was Jordana McKinney, 37, a 13-year survivor. There were four who had 50-plus years as survivors: Storey, Dale Gravley, Elaine Henry and Marilyn Wahl.
